ARENA 1 is pleased to announce NOW, a group exhibition
curated by Yossi Govrin, which includes the work of five contemporary artists.
The exhibition opens on Saturday, March 15th, 2008 with a reception
from 7–9 pm and continues through April 26th.
The title of the exhibition reflects the idea that all the works have
been created specifically for the space and that they represent one particular
idea each artist is addressing at this moment in her/his practice. While the
art world debates whether painting is alive or dead and an artist of the
stature of Tony Smith describes his work as “presence” rather than sculpture,
there really are no rules for what contemporary art is now. NOW is just what is happening – and it exists in the context of all the
schools of art practice that came before.
